Ontario CEUs

The College of Massage Therapists of Ontario decided in 2016 to stop pre-approval of Con-Ed courses for CEUs. CEU approvals that were granted before their decision are valid for three years from the approval date. Where this applies to any courses in our spring line-up, we have indicated “CMTO-Approved CEUs” on the course description page.

For all other courses, CMTO registrants are now responsible for assessing their own CEU choices, and you will have received updated information about this from the College. You can also access the following areas of the CMTO’s website:

Sutherland-Chan Continuing Education instructors whose workshops do not have pre-approved CEUs will provide their course participants with a list of proposed practice competencies and performance indicators (PC/PIs) and a suggested CEU level to assist with your submissions to the College.
